with the disconnect that i was alluding to earlier between how science deals with this question and how lawyers deal with this question is that you actually get a fundamental disconnect between the two systems. so you mentioned that lack of emotional control or lack of ability to control your preferences might lead to insanity, but, in fact, in most jurisdictions as you know, that's not true. after hanky was acquitted under the american law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental d

for the science to get better, i think, is just, it's too late for that. so the cat is already out of the bag. the question is what do you do now that it's in the courtroom. well, we have dualing experts. we have judges sitting in a gate keeping role who have to decide whether or not the evidence should be admissible and whether it should be permitted in a case. my view is that the more evidence that we can provide to a scrr or to a judge -- jury or to a judge in their decision makings, some objective evidence, some evidence to bolster things like a diagnosis of schizophrenia or i.q., all the better. at the same time we need the critics in the courtroom explaining the shortcomings of the science so that we don't have false evidence that is introduced or undue reliance on science that isn't quite there yet. my preference is recognize it's already there, but make sure that we have robust discussions about the validity of the science before people buy into it too much. >> yeah, i would just add that i basically agree that it's already in the courtroom. however, i would caution that it's not in t

to do on my science project for tomorrow. what is that scent? it smells really good in here. that scent is coming from my science project. i made a whole new flower out of two different flowers. you made a hybrid? yeah, i combined two different things to make a third new thing. i combined a calla lily with a rare scalicanlaloopy flower; i call my hybrid flower a callaloopy. that's amazing, lisa, you're totally going to get an a. oh, i'm just so happy the plant bloomed. yeah, it opened all right. yeah, i was worried that the flower wouldn't bloom, and if it didn't, i couldn't prove that my plant's a hybrid of these two. ♪ i see you got your little flower to's cute. but you're never going to beat my science project. it's a hybrid of a garden phlox flower and a holly bush, and i call it...francine. if you say so, francine. come on hector, i'm going to get some water for my callaloopy. yeah. ♪ what is that gunk on your leaf? a dead bug!

steady since i did not have a formal education. i did not have math or science. and someone said to check out this new field of computer science. and he said it was a man-made language. and i thought, great. i am good with language, and i know how to make stuff. fortunately, that was a great and rising newfield. tavis: what do you make a looking back on it now? what do you make of how it came to be, the burgeoning growth of computer technology just happened to coincide with your arriving here? somebody suggested, maybe you ought to try this? i am asking how you process that. i get to that because of the success you have had, sitting on the obama commission. it is quite a fascinating journey. how do you look back at that decision at the time when you can barely speak english to study computer science? >> what is taught me is behind every closed door there is new opportunity. it is like every time life shut the door, it closes on me, high end up doing something else, and it is a new world that opens up for me. i learned in my life's journey many times that when something -- when it looks li

science and faith. look at what's coming along. we're going to unlock the human genome, we're going to engage in genetic engineering to eliminate inherited disease and perfect mankind. we may overcome, to a great extent, the aging process. we may reinvent life itself. we may feel as though we're taking on god-like powers. and there will be people, particularly in your communion, but also in yours, who will say why are we tinkering with what god and god alone should be doing? we are tinkering with the genetic structure of man. we are changing man as we have known him and has been presented by the koran and by the bible. do you see that coming? and will it sway people more toward religion or away from religion? >> well, i think medicine for the last hundred years has already undergone a lot of change. we don't even have to guess the years coming up. and certainly, as people who live in modern america, we all profit, religious or not we profit from the medical advances. >> now, the pharmaceuticals that come into existence by reason of biotechnology and genetic -- genetic -- the genetic

that you have to ask the question from the legal system and from the science perspective as to what free will might mean. on the science side, the question really is, and this is what we were debating, is the question whether you can operationally define free will so you can measure it? from a scientist's standpoint, a construct doesn't really mean anything if you can't measure it. i have been asked many, many newer scientists including ken, what exactly does free will mean and how do you measure it? it could be like emotional control. it could be something like impulsivity, impulse control and you get back to the basic problem that chris who is a colleague of anita's at vanderbilt, wait he has put it, how do you distinguish and irresistible impulse from an impulse not resisted. there is a basic gray area, a difficult ability to say, did you actually choose that and did you choose it in a way that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted
